ACM Transactions on Reconfigurable Technology and Systems
(TRETS) is a peer-reviewed and archival journal that covers reconfigurable
technology, systems, and applications on reconfigurable computers.
Authors are invited to submit original manuscripts for consideration after
having reviewed the
Information for Authors on this website.
The first issue was published in March 2008.
TRETS is a new journal focused on research in, on, and with reconfigurable
systems and on the underlying technology (which is currently that of FPGAs
but could include other approaches involving an adaptable fabric) that
supports these systems for computing or other applications.
The scope, rationale, and coverage by other journals are often limited to
particular aspects of reconfigurable technology or reconfigurable systems.
TRETS will be a journal that covers reconfigurability in its own right.
Topics that would be appropriate for TRETS would include all levels of
reconfigurable system abstractions and all aspects of reconfigurable
technology including platforms, programming environments and application
successes, such as:
In considering whether a paper is suitable for TRETS, the foremost question
should be whether reconfigurability has been essential to success.
Topics such as architecture, programming languages, compilers, and environments,
logic synthesis, and high performance applications are all suitable if the context
For example, an architecture for an embedded application that happens to use
FPGAs is not necessarily suitable for TRETS, but a architecture using FPGAs
for which the reconfigurability of the FPGAs is an inherent part of the
specifications would be appropriate for TRETS.
The systems architecture of a reconfigurable platform.
The programming environment of a reconfigurable system.
Applications on which success can be demonstrated.
The underlying technology from which reconfigurable systems are developed.
ACM TRETS is looking for the next Editor-In-Chief
We are looking for a new Editor-in-Chief whose term will begin in March 2013. The Editor-in-Chief will
be appointed for three years, with the possibility of one three-year renewal. We are looking for a
well-established person with a strong record of achievement in reconfigurable systems research and
service to the community. The ACM evaluation criteria for the EIC and other policy documents can be
found at: http://www.acm.org/publications/policies/policies-toc
Please submit your nominations for Editor-in-Chief by Feb. 1, 2013 to the chair of the search committee,
Carl Ebeling (email@example.com).
